I have some big news!! We will have a new daughter soon! WOW!! I am sure you are wondering why I have kept this little secret - but, of course some things are not for all of blogville to know.
We have been going trough this process since Octoberish - and it seems like years. We started out planning to do foster care, but God had a different plan. While we were waiting for our approval for the fostering , I got nosy and started looking at the children in our state that were available for adoption. There are sooooo many y'all. Anyway, When I got to this one little girl - I felt a tug on my heart and knew it was God.
So, the process for her was started and I can testify that the state is SLOW!! OHMYWORD!! We hope to have her with us within a month.
A little about her...
She is precious. She will be 11 years old in April. She is Deaf. She is African American. She lives at Deaf school during the week and goes to her foster home 7 hours away every week-end. We live much closer. Her name is ... hmmm, let's call her Six, since that's where she is in the line up. ;) NO, people that is not her real name!! She does have a pretty name and a pretty sign name.
That is all for now - more tomorrow.
